Redemption Falls by Joseph O'Connor
Redemption Falls

may5005ster, June 20, 2008

Am ambitious, complex, remarkable story with memorable characters and gorgeous, intriguing language. Linger over it and take in the details created by O'Connor's use of dialect and different media (verse, songs, letters...).

Days of Atonement by Michael Gregorio
Days of Atonement

may5005ster, June 13, 2008

The crime is horrific. It takes an unlikely team of a Prussian magistrate and a French criminologist to solve the murders while they learn to work together in the tense atmosphere of French-occupied Prussia. A great sequel to the "Critique of Criminal Reason."
